Toomas Vint’s Other Windows

27 May – 2 Jun
Haus Gallery

Is Toomas Vint a landscape painter?
If an artist paints the landscape what do they see and imagine during this – are there just endless roads, summer horizons, colours of the forest, celestial rhythms of clouds, or parks in seasonal games?

On March 5 this year, the artist turned 75.

Exhibition Congregation of Chaos. Retrospective

27 May – 22 Jun
Kogo Gallery

Retrospective is a collaborative exhibition by witnesses to the permanently transient immeasurable manifestation of the omnieternally disappearing and emerging chaos. As a spontaneously flowing spatial installation, the exhibition aims to look back upon the perpetual conflict between humanity and the universe, which has been tormenting men from the moment the first human hand reached for a stone axe. 

Participating artists: Martiini, Salme Kulmar, Marja-Liisa Plats, Helle Ly Tomberg, Paul Lepasson, Uku Pira, Martin Rästa, Siim Lill, Kersten Kõrge, Gabriela Liivamägi

When they were in disfavour during the Soviet era, the literary figures Elo and Friedebert Tuglas found refuge in their garden: gardening helped alleviate their bitterness.

The photographic artist Tanja Muravskaja searched in the garden of the Under and Tuglas Literature Centre for the Tuglas’s presence and the meaning of the garden exile today.

Curator: Elnara Taidre

Eight years after their separation, Abel meets Marianne again, at Paul’s funeral.

Exhibition You Must Have a Body

27 – 30 May
Estonian Academy of Arts

The subject of the exhibition is the body and the experience of this self-existence and being a part of the world.

Nine young artists interpret how bodies interact with each other, what are the characteristics of the body, and what, in which form, leaves marks in the body. The selection of the materials and techniques used can be somewhat surprising.

Participators: Georg Arnold, Kristina Kask, Endel Maas, Terje Meisterson, Tauris Reose, Kristin Sepp, Oleg Šubitšev, Mart Talvar, Taavi Teevet 

Performance All That Goes Right

28 May
29 May
30 May
Kanuti Gildi SAAL

All That Goes Right is a result of four dancers coming together who are observing their own actions and perception through language and text building.

It is a search for social boundaries and when they are crossed. It’s also a question of how these four seemingly harmless personas can carry prejudices that exclude those who are from a different social group. Different ways of thinking are applied, in order to see how exclusion occurs. The interest lies in looking at how a simple opinion can turn into a set of rules among a group. How to transform from being a defined subject into a defining entity?

Performance on May 28 is followed by an artist talk.

Kumu Documentary: Our Blood is Wine

29 May
Kumu auditorium

The film-maker Emily Railsback and sommelier Jeremy Quinn provide intimate access to rural family life in the Republic of Georgia as they explore the rebirth of 8,000-year-old winemaking traditions almost lost during the period of Soviet rule. By using unobtrusive iPhone technology, Railsback brings the voices and ancestral legacies of modern Georgians directly to the viewer, revealing an intricate and resilient society that has survived numerous foreign invasions and repeated attempts to erase Georgian culture. The revival of traditional winemaking is the central force driving this powerful, independent and autonomous nation to find its 21st-century identity.
